Campground is located about a mile outside of the town of Curtis on the shores of the Big Manistique Lake. Rating is for the larger pull-through campsites in the front of the park, which are large and nicely treed. The smaller campsites in the front of the park are close together and would probably only rate a 7. The campground is clean and well maintained and the owners are very friendly.
Park has a very nice view of the Mackinaw Bridge and Lake Huron. I prefer the 50 amp sites in the back of the park as they have a nice view of the water and bridge and are far enough from the road that there is no road noise. These sites are large enough for a 40 ft fifth wheel and are wider than the sites at the front of the park. The park does not have any sewer sites, which is a negative for me, but we stay here every time we come to Mackinaw City because of the view and the friendly owners.
We stayed overnight in this campground when returning from vacation. I requested and was provided a long pull-through so that I did not have to unhook my camper. Campground was clean and well cared for and the office staff was friendly, making this a good campground for an overnight stay. The campground does have one strange feature : The entry road to the larger sites is before the office making it necessary to back up to make the turn into the road. While it is a straight back-up with longer units your camper will end up backing onto the main road so it is important to watch for traffic (fortunately it is a rural road with little traffic).
We stayed overnight at this campground on our way home from vacation. The campground has long, level pull-through sites and the staff was friendly and helpful. The directional signs for the campground are small and easy to miss and I had difficulty finding the campground in the dark. This was compounded by the fact that my GPS did not locate the campground and gave inaccurate directions (not the campground's fault but worth being aware of).
We stayed in this park for 17 nights while visiting Durango and Silverton. The park staff were friendly and very helpful. The park is well maintained with many flower beds and nice views of the river. The sites in the park are long enough to accommodate larger RVs but are not very wide. The park has a nice pool that is kept clean and warm.
We stayed here overnight on our way to Durango. The park is aesthetically pleasing with paved roads and paved sites, but also has a few draw backs. The roads are tight and narrow and while I was able to get to my site, it required careful maneuvering of my 40 ft fifth wheel. The pull through site was long enough to remain hooked up during my stay, but the paved pad was not level so I did have to use leveling blocks to get level side to side. One feature I particularly dis-like is the pull though sites are set up with shared common areas so the doors of the campers point toward each other. I prefer not to face my neighbor when I am sitting at my picnic table. While this campground worked well for an overnight stay I would probably not select this park for a longer duration stay.
Park was well laid out and access to the sites was easy, even for larger units. Pull through sites are long and spacious, I was able to keep my truck connected to my 40 ft fifth wheel for an overnight stay. Campground was clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. Only negative for this park is that there are no directional signs off of the freeway telling you where to turn (Mynard Rd is directly across from the Cenex truck stop (you make a left turn onto Mynard Rd when coming off the freeway). You follow the road around for a quarter mile and the campground entrance is on the left. The campground entrance itself is signed and easy to spot from Mynard Rd.
We stayed here on our way home from out west. The campground has good access to the freeway. The campground staff was friendly and was able to accommodate my request for a long pull through so I would not have to unhook my truck. The sites in this campground are level and utilities are logically placed, but they are closely packed together. The campground does not have fire rings ... if you want to have a campfire you need to rent an above ground fire pit from the office. Because of its easy access to the freeway this campground makes a good overnight stop but because of how close the campsites are together I probably wouldn't stay here more than a couple of days.
We stayed here for two weeks while visiting South Dakota. This is a very nice campground with large spacious sites. Campground staff was friendly and the campground was very clean and well maintained. The campground is divided into several sections ranging from wide open flat grasslands to heavily shaded treed areas. It is important to review the campground website and make sure the area of the park you are placed in meets your needs (i.e. some of the areas do not have bathhouses and are far from the office and pool). Also be aware that the wireless internet coverage is spotty and the service is slow in the campsites. There are internet connections in the office that are faster and more reliable. The site we were on was not overly level and required several boards under the tires in able to get the camper level.
We stayed here overnight while travelling out west. Campground accommodated my request for a long pull through so that I would not have to unhook my truck. Staff was friendly and the campground and pool were well maintained. There were lots of activities for the kids (playground, jumping pillow, rental bikes). The campground provided us free pancakes and sausage for breakfast in the morning. The sites were fairly close together (somewhat typical of KOAs that we've stayed at) but were level and gravel with well maintained utilities.
This was a nice clean park that had easy access to I80. We stayed here one night while travelling out west. Campground was clean and had large, easily accessible sights. Sights were level and had plenty of gravel for good drainage.
A very clean, well cared for RV park. We stayed here one night before taking the Badger car ferry over to Wisconsin. The park accommodated my request for a pull through site that was long enough to leave my truck hooked up to my camper. Sites are either well graveled or paved (depending on price paid). I stayed on a gravel site and even thought it poured rain the evening we stayed the site drained well and remained dry. Access roads are large and sites are easy to enter and exit. Hookups are modern and logically laid out relative to the sites. I would definitely stay at this campground again when returning to the Ludington area.
We stayed at this campground for 16 nights while visiting the Wisconsin Dells. The campground is well maintained and has very nice facilities. The main bathhouse is reasonably new and is meticulously cleaned ... one of the cleanest campground restrooms I have ever visited. The staff at the campground was very friendly and answered any questions we had about the local area. Sites are large and well laid out. I believe that full hook-up sites 36, 37, 39, 41, and 43 are the nicest in the campground due to their large size and the fact that they do not back up to other sites making them relatively quiet. The sites near the front of the campground that circle the mini-golf are nice size but are nosier due to their closeness to the main road. All in all this is one of the nicest campgrounds I have ever stayed at and I would definitely choose this campground again when staying in the Wisconsin Dells.
This is a well maintained campground with nice level sites and paved patios. Staff is friendly. The entrance road is not well signed and is very narrow ... it only accommodates one large RV in one direction at a time. Bathrooms were large and clean.
We stayed at this park while visiting Porcupine Mountains State Park and visiting Copper Harbor. This is the only park we could find in this part of Michigan that offered full hook-up RV sites. This is a well-maintained park with wide access roads and easily accessible sites. Hookups were logically arranged and close to the sites. The staff at the park were friendly and helpful. The Wi-Fi worked well and the cable service provided offered a large number of channels. The park has a very large, well kept and clean bathhouse and nice laundry facilities.
Campground was clean and well cared for. The staff was friendly and accommodated my request for a long pull through so that I would not need to unhook during our one night stay. Most of the campground facilities and recreation provided were very well maintained. The only negative is the game room which had a number of non-working vintage games.
We stayed here for eight nights while visiting Munising. Pluses for this campground are spacious sites and easy to maneuver access roads. There are several grassy sites up front but they have no trees and are close to the frontage road which carries lots of traffic. The sights in the back are shaded with trees, but also have no grass so they are muddy and dirty when it rains. All of the back sites have shared hook-ups and some of the sites will require extra electric cord or sewer hose to hook up. The laundry room is in the basement and was unpleasant/damp enough that we elected to use a laundromat in town. The swimming pool was not well kept and was starting to look a tad green while we were there. Given the condition of the laundry room and the pool I thought the $40 rate was a tad high ... that being said there are limited choices in the Munising area that offer full hookup so we would probably stay at this campground again when we are in the area.
A well maintained campground with basic amenities. Roads are wide and easy to maneuver and full hook up sites provide easy access to large campers. There are many seasonal sites in this park but they are well maintained and the campers are friendly. Restrooms and showers are very clean. We stay here once a year when we are canoeing on the Platte River and have always had a good camping experience.
Well maintained campground with very large sites. Sites 22-65 are heavily treed and offer lots of shade. Staff was friendly and helpful. Park has wide access roads that will easily accommodate larger RVs. This is an older campground but appears to be well maintained and kept very clean. Most sites have been upgraded to 50 amp electric. Wi-Fi is only accessible near office and back bath house. Park is adding four new camping cabins and has added a nice wooden play structure at the front near the pool for 2010.
This is a very clean, easily accessible park close to Cincinnati. Roads are wide and paved and sites are angled to the road for easy backing in. The park has very nice facilities including a boat rental, picnic areas, a paved biking/walking trail, boat rentals, and a splash park. My only complaint with the park is their night check-in. The park has an entry gate so it is necessary to call in via a phone at the gate. The phone operator will open the gate for you but instructs you to wait for the Park Ranger who never shows up. After waiting fifteen minutes I finally went to the site I had reserved and set-up. I noticed this same thing happen to several other late arrivals during my stay.
A clean, quiet campground with well kept facilities. All sights are full hook-up with 50 amp electric service. Roads and sites are paved and each site has a paved patio as well. Road and site access is adequate for large RVS. The only area to be cautious with larger RVs is at the park entrance. The entrance is at the end of a curve and meets the road at an odd angle (i.e. more than a 90 degree turn is required to enter the park). If you are approaching the park going north on US 321 you will have to make a right turn into the park and will need to make sure you have plenty of room to swing the turn wide so you clear the guard rail at the park entrance. Restrooms and showers are kept very clean. Pool is well maintained and water is kept comfortably warm. The only minor negative to this park if you have kids is the playground is very small and the playground equipment is designed for small children (under 100 lbs).
We used this campground as a vacation base while visiting the Chattanooga area. There are two negatives to this campground, the size of the sites and the very small playground. The campground is almost all pull through sites that are very narrow and are not overly long (I couldn't fit my 36 foot trailer and my crew cab pickup on the site without backing the truck in at an angle next to the trailer). The location of the sewer hookup on the site required 15 feet of sewer hose to hook up. Campground interior roads and sites are gravelled and are well designed for RV access. The pool was clean and warm. The comfort station is modern with tile floors and walls and is very clean. Campground staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the local area.
We used this campground as an overnight stay on our way to Tennessee. The staff was friendly and accommodated our request for a pull through campsite that was long enough that we would not need to unhook for the evening. The pool was heated and clean. The campground has easy access to I-75. The only negative to the campground is its close proximity to I-75 and to a very busy train track provide a constant background noise.
I reserved a full hook-up, back-in site that was supposed to accommodate a 40 ft trailer. The site was very shallow: my 36 foot trailer occupied the entire site with the back jacks at the end of the pad and my tounge jack right at the edge of the street. Backing into the site was very difficult. Sites are at a 90 degree angle to the road and large trees at the edge of the site require a tight turn to get on the site. Fortunately it was not very busy when I arrived on Thursday evening so the road was reasonably clear. As the campground filled up later in the weekend the only place to park vehicles was in the roadway making access to the campsites even more difficult. The campground was not in a particularly nice part of town. It was located in the middle of a mobile home park and right next to a heavily travelled railroad track (trains every fifteen minutes). Some of the roads in the campground were narrow and maneuvering a large trailer was difficult. On the plus side, the campgrounds restrooms were very clean and the staff was friendly. Given the small sites and difficulty of maneuvering I would probably choose a different campground on my next visit to Sandusky.
Park is close to US-131 just south of Grand Rapids. Full hook-up sites at park are open year round. We stayed here late in March because it was one of the only parks near Grand Rapids that was open this early in the year. Sites are grassy and the front full hook-up sites are not very level (they slope down toward the road). I had difficulty hitching and unhitching due to the slope of the sites. It was rainy the weekend we stayed and the sites became extremely soft and muddy. Office was not open the entire weekend we were at the campground and there was no instructions for how to check in/pay. We ended up putting $37/night (advertised rate on website) into an envelope and slid it through the mail slot before evening. While the location of this campground is convenient to Grand Rapids, there are nicer campgrounds in the area and I would probably choose a different campground on a future visit.
Nice campground with easily accessible sights. Pull through sites were long enough to leave tow vehicle and trailer connected which was appreciated since we were only staying for one night. Staff was friendly and showed us to our sight. Pool was clean and well maintained. The bathrooms and showers were acceptable but could have used a little more attention in terms of cleaning. The campgrond is well signed when coming off the turnpike and easy to find. All in all I would stay here again.
While this campground has some positive aspects, it has some negatives as well. From a positive standpoint, the campground has nice facilities (i.e. good access roads, clean sites, clean restrooms, and a well stocked store) and the staff was always friendly and courteous to me. On the negative side, there are rules posted everywhere and the language is, quite frankly, rude, and to me offensive. I do not need to see in multiple locations that my campground stay will be terminated and legal action will be taken if I do not follow the rules. I found the language of the rules very much in contrast to the staff's attitude, as I had no issues in the way the staff treated me at check-in or anytime during my stay. This campground is also over the top with their check in and check out policies. I received an e-mail two days before my stay reminding me that check in was 3:00 and I would be charged extra for checking in early. Than, on check-out day I had a flyer placed on my windshield reminding me of the checkout time and making it clear that extra charges would accrue for checking out late. Lastly (and surprisingly for a KOA) there are no directional signs form this campground, regardless of which direction you approach the campground from ... this wouldn't be much of a concern except that the campground is not close to the freeway exits, and several turns are required to get there. All in all, while the campground facilities are nice, there are numerous campgrounds in this area and on a return trip I would probably elect to stay at a more "relaxed" less rull intensive campground.
Campground roads and sites are well laid out making access to the campground easy, even for large RVs. The campground is well maintained and very clean. Campground staff was friendly and helpful and the campground had a large number of activities for kids. The campground has a new and well equipped playground that my kids enjoyed playing on. The campground has a small canoe livery that rents canoes and kayaks on the adjoining Juniata River. My only complaint with the campground is that the laundry facilities are fairly small for a campground of this size (2 washers and 2 dryers).
Very clean and well cared for campground near Raystown Lake. Sites are large and there are enough trees in the campground to provide some shade. Campground staff were friendly and helpful. Wireless internet is available in the main campground office for a nominal fee. The one negative to this campground is the access road ... it is a rough, narrow road that will require you to travel slowly and carefully with your camper for the mile distance from the main highway to the campground gate. Once inside the campground the road are well maintained, smooth, and wide enough to accommodate the largest of campers.
Clean, easily accessible park that is very close to the Ohio Turnpike and Cedar Point Amusement park. Park has large pull-thru sights that are long enough to leave the camper and tow vehicle connected for an overnight stay. Park was clean and well cared for and camp staff was friendly and helpful.
Park is very new and has modern facilities throughout. Roads are paved and wide. All sites have paved pads that are angled to the road for easy back-in. All full-hookup sites have 50 amp electrical service available. Shower and bathroom buildings are very clean and well lighted. Next door to the park is a go-cart and mini-golf facility that has a large game room that is popular with the kids. This park does have one detraction ... CN and CSX both have train tracks that run alongside the campground. These tracks are heavily traveled (train every fifteen minutes or so day and night) ... they don't bother me but if you are a light sleeper the train whistles may keep you awake at night.
A great family park with lots of activities for the kids (game room, swimming pond, fishing pond, bike and paddle boat rentals, water slides, and a large playground with play structures for toddlers as well as older kids). Campground has lots of undeveloped space for playing catch, frisbee, baseball, etc. Campground access roads are wide and accessible. If you have a larger camper you probably want to stick to the larger sites that are west of the entrance roads (sites 36 - 76) ... the back half of the campground is heavily treed and can be a tight squeeze. Also note that water electric sites 69 through 76B have shared hook-ups so it is advisable to have extra electrical cord and hose to reach the hookups.
Park has a large lake with a walking trail around it. The sites in the front of the park are grassy and open and the sites in the back are heavily treed. The showers and restrooms inside the building are cleaner than the main showers in the front of the building. Office staff is friendly and helpful. We stay at this campground several times a year as it is close to our house and always have a good time.
Park has a nice indoor pool that is warm and a well equipped playground. Staff was courteous and friendly during check in. Sites in the full-hookup part of the campground (sites 100 - 118) have a row of trees/bushes that provide some shade/privacy from the adjoining sites and once on the sites they are grassy and spacious. This campground, however, was not designed to accommodate larger units. The roads and camp-site entrances are very narrow and trees close to the roads make it difficult to maneuver. I have a 34 foot travel trailer and found maneuvering into and out of a pull-through site to be very difficult. I do not believe I would be able to maneuver my trailer through or fit into any of the non full-hookup sites in the campground. There are many seasonal sites in this campground.
Campground staff was very friendly and helpful. Don, the campground host helped us select a good site and was very pleasant and friendly. Campground had Easter activities and crafts for the kids that were well organized. Sights were graveled and level. Campground access roads were wide and easy to maneuver. Restrooms and showers had tiled floors and were very, very clean. Overall a very nice campground that we would visit again.
